Years ago, back in the eighties, my wife and I used to tour with craftsmen (and women) and set up our woodcraft/candle making kiosk in malls throughout the midwest. I was recently requested to make some of my keychains for some gifts. This is the result. I guess I haven’t lost my hand at it.

Doing it for a living made me pretty quick. From the time I took the order to the time that the crystal clear was dry enough for them to handle it … about 5 or 6 minutes.

Those look good. Like that old retro ‘futuristic’ font.
